I made this hat up in a couple of nights. First of all I followed a pattern but the resulting hat was far too small for me. It was kind of like a beret, where I was really after more of a beanie style hat.
I unpicked about half of the hat and just made up the rest of it, measuring it on my head every now and then.
And then, ta-da...............
(It's hard to get a photo of me without little man in it!)
You can kind of see the flower on it here a bit clearer. It might show up better in daylight but I was keen to show it off! The black wool also has a little sparkle to it.
The flower is stitched all in one but it's like there are three layers to it.
I'm so proud of it, and very excited (sorry!)
I'm off now to make up a batch of them in different colours for Christmas presents. Any friends reading this, please state your colour preference now, or forever hold your peace :0)
